Re: Transmission slamming into gears after parking on a decline

Re: Ls2 v6 turning over but not starting

P0335 is a very unusual error code as it rarely (if ever) appeared here. It's pointing to the crank position sensor. Basically, a dead crank sensor kills the entire EFI system. The ecm cannot run...

Re: Ls2 v6 turning over but not starting

If you can, update your profile to reflect what you're driving so it comes up under your name. We won't have to play twenty questions.

Year and mileage while I look up the error codes?

Re: Transmission slamming into gears after parking on a decline

randyfarber, hard shifting can be a faulty pressure control solenoid but you're not experiencing hard shifts at any time other than the initial movement when parking downhill. This suggests possible...

Re: 02 SL2 not turning over after sitting for about 1 month

1-That video was made in 5/5/2014 and zero followup on what the problem was.

Re: Ls2 v6 turning over but not starting

Re: Is engine seized?

Mileage? Worn timing chain may allow upper engine noise. Low oil pressure may allow more wear to occur for noisy drive train mechanicals. Most oil pressure problems are from a worn out oil pressure...

Re: My 05 quad just hit 300k, want to keep running good!

Just a guess here. A small and large evap system leak can be anywhere. I had both error codes, starting with a small leak that became a large leak on my L300. My fuel vent line (steel, around 1/4"...

Re: Did my A/C compressor just break?

The compressor buzzing is one hint of losing refrigerant. As refrigerant leaks out, there's less to compress with less oil to lubricate. Less oil means less lubrication and you're hearing it. Once...
